The world of Direct Response marketing is dependent on getting quick and high-quality results. When Dial800 was founded they quickly found collaborators in the Direct Response industry. Growing together from mail order forms and infomercials, Dial800 has been a steadfast solution and partner to our Direct Response clients. In recent years mediums have shifted and together we are moving into the world of OTT media.

What is OTT?

Over-The-Top (OTT) refers to the practice of streaming content to customers directly over the web. It can be classified as premium video, accessed through the internet, that’s watched on either a smart TV or through an internet-connected device or even on smartphones, tablets or computers. This includes popular streaming sites like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Disney+.

According to an Uscreen report roundup, the Over-the-top (OTT) market was worth $121.61 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow to $1.039 trillion by 2027. OTT streaming is expected to grow in markets all across the globe in the coming years, with 69% more hours spent on OTT apps worldwide since 2019.

As more people stayed home last year, time spent streaming videos online went up even faster – across the globe in Q4 2020 alone, 239 billion hours was spent on video streaming apps! Speaking of apps, that’s where most OTT streaming is done; 65% of OTT streaming is through mobile and TV apps like Netflix (the most popular app, with 30.8% of the OTT streaming service market), while the most popular streaming TV device is the Roku which accounted for 37% of TV viewing in North America last year.

But how effective is OTT advertising? OTT streamers are very engaged with online content, with 40% of users pausing their videos to look up products being advertised. When they have another screen around (like a laptop, smart phone, or tablet), 65% will look up product information while continuing to watch their video.
